Retail investors have now started to look at debt issues, follow- on public offers and IPOs with enhanced circumspection to maintain close scrutiny of prices. For raising increased cash, a retail investor can consider selling some shares at high prices. Retail investors have started to make selection based entry within the market. There has been an increase in their appetite for risk, and some investors have started to make investments again after a short break, while ensuring caution. Schemes of mutual fund as well have started to seem some good participation in retail. All of this has resulted in reviving retail interest (Hofstede, 2011).
Currently, two contradictory perspectives have emerged across the market. First, some of the investors are more attracted towards high level mutual funds. Second, other investors are making selective purchases within public offerings of attractive value (Hirshleifer, 2011). The two contradictory signals come out from the behaviour of retail investors. However, there is no doubt that the interest of some retail investors come back in seeing value. Retail investors have also become extremely choosy. In their past experiences, they have faced major losses even after being at a peak position in the market.
